Web Log Writer Linked to 2003 Blackout
Add Top Stories - Reuters to My Yahoo!

By Tabassum Zakaria

Authorities investigating the recent blackout that occurred in the northeastern United States and parts of Canada have discovered that a router reset may have been the original source of an unfortunate chain of events leading up to the outtage.

Experts from First Energy Corp. say that a blogger running a site called Quit That! admitted publicly on his website that he had reset a router that day which in turn set off a chain of events that eventually took power away from several million people. First Energy officials claim that this new discovery admonishes them of any blame for the power outtage and will now concentrate on prosecuting the blogger to the full extent of the law.
